This book is about three kids: Meg, Charles Wallace and Calvin. They go on a search for Meg's and Charles' father. On the way there they find lots of new friends.
Mrs. Whatsit, Mrs. Who and Mrs. Which are the friends who help the kids save their father. The three ladies were creatures that could transform into different forms of life. Mrs. Whatsit used to be a star, but she exploded and became a create that looked like a centaur with wings. Mrs. Who and Mrs. Which could also become centaurs with wings. But when Meg, Charles and Calvin met them, they looked like regular women, but dressed weird.
The Black Thing was an evil shadow form which Meg and Charles Wallace's father was fighting. They had to tesseract, which was traveling through the fifth dimension, to get behind the Black Thing to save their father.
The three kids had to go to planet Camazotz because their father was there. There everything was identical. All the houses even the number of flowers were identical. All the kids played to the same rhythm. Everyone answered the door at the same time.
The kids went to CENTRAL Central Intelligence because their father was inside. CENTRAL Central is like our City Hall, but they punish people there. The Man with the Red Eyes lives in CENTRAL Central. He is a slave controlled by "It". He tricked Charles into letting him be hypnotized .
The Beasts lived on a planet where everything was gray. The Beasts helped Meg recover from being frozen. Meg calls them Aunt Beasts.
"It" was a brain who kept the rhythm for everything in Camazotz. Everyone was "It's" slave. After Charles was hypnotized, he went to It. Meg saved Charles from It by showing love for Charles. That saved him because It didn't have love.
